Abstract

UV irradiation and mitomycin C exposure trigger a protease-activity-dependent inhibition of cell division in , which begins about 2 h after the treatment is applied. UV irradiation also induces a dose-dependent mutagenesis with a maximal rate between 5 and 10 J m, with increased synthesis of a protein of approximately 30000 between 2 and 3 h after UV irradiation. In addition, has an efficient photoreactivation system that reverses the lethal effects of UV irradiation in the presence of intense visible light.
